Safety this Holiday Season

As New Year’s Day approaches party hard, but please remember to be mindful that, unfortunately, there are a lot of impaired drivers on the road.

ALCOHOL:

  • Statistics Canada reports that there are approximately 1,200 impaired driving incidents each weekendleading to Christmas and New Year’s Eve
  • It also reports that 50% of impaired driving accidents happen between 11 p.m. - 4 a.m.
  • MADD Canada reports that between 1,250 - 1,500 people are killed by impaired driving each year and over 63,000 are injured

Therefore, we can’t advocate enough the need to have a plan when anticipating drinking this holiday season. Call a cab and make reservations in advance, call an Uber, find a sober driver, or call Operation Red Nose.

Even if you are hosting a party which will serve drinks, you may be responsible for your guests. Therefore, make sure that your guests are matched with proper drivers as well.

Happy New Year! Let’s make it a safe one.
